Hi,
Few days back our OPS team has created a database in MS Access 2007 (.accdb).
Now only 1 user is able to open that and other not where we need to have multiple users working on the same database file.
I m not very much familiar with MS Access so please help on this.

Same database access methods.

Do you have a plan for Continuity?

It's inevitable. People leave organizations creating a gap in your service. That's where Percona comes in.

See how Pepper.com relies on Percona to:
-Manage their database
-Guarantee data safety and protection
-Provide database expertise that is available for any situation

First, the Database should be split.
http://www.databasedev.co.uk/split_a_database.html

Second, is that if the database is in the 2007 format, it will only be readable by users who have Access 2007 installed.
(So users who have only Access 2003 (.mdb) or older installed, will not be able to open the Acc 2007 (.accdb) Database.

Can you tell us specifically what happens when a user cannot open the file?
Nothing, Error message, system crash, ...etc?

This should help if you want to open differently.  Shows you how to change default database open method.  Should be similar in access 2007.
